American King, the stunning conclusion to The New Camelot Trilogy by Sierra Simone is available NOW!!






They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.

And I will survive this.

Long live the king.





When I was twenty-two, I met a prince. He seemed to be the exact opposite of everything I was—loud where I was quiet, smiling where I frowned, careless where I was careful, careful, careful. Embry joined the Army because Vivienne Moore wanted her son to craft the perfect politician’s resume. I joined because it seemed like the place to continue my never-ending quest for honor; because becoming an officer in the Army had a certain cachet in my neighborhood; because I wanted to somehow cosmically return the favor for my college scholarship; because the structure and rigid hierarchy of military life appealed to me.

Most importantly, I joined because I knew Carpathia was the most dangerous place in the world at the time, and I felt needed there in a way I can’t describe. It was like a barometric pressure that made my bones and teeth ache when I tried to resist it. I knew that I was supposed to be there in the same way I knew that God was real or that I was bisexual. It was a fact, even if it couldn’t be seen.

And after all that, then I see this lieutenant refuse to break up a fight? When we were there on the brink of war and responsible for safekeeping innocents nearby? No. I wasn’t an angry person, but I was a disciplined one, and the one thing I couldn’t tolerate in other people was a lack of it.

I only meant to shake some sense into him, to tell him clearly and unmistakably that he wouldn’t get away with that shit while I was around, but then he turned, and I saw his face for the first time.

And it was over.


One look at those winter-blue eyes and those delicate lips and I was finished. One glance at his lean, long body, and I was falling. Every part of me responded with heat and flush and wrenching want, like a hook had been fastened somewhere in my chest and was now giving an almighty tug, and the only thing to ease the ache would be to get closer, closer, closer.

I’d never seen a boy so beautiful. Haughty as he was, overindulged and so obviously dissolute, he was the loveliest person, boy or girl, I’d ever seen.

I still pinned him against the wall, though. And it was when I had him against the wall with my forearm on his throat and my body trapping his that he sealed his fate. As I was choking him, he looked at me with his whole world in his eyes.

On November 22, 2016, I took a chance on a book I just so happened to come across on Amazon. I read the synopsis and said yes this book sounds like it was written just for me.  That book was called American Queen.

On March 7, 2017, American Prince went live and I could’ve received a medal for the world’s fastest reader that day. I remember the high I had that day when I started reading was like a kid on Christmas morning.

On October 23, 2017, I was informed that American King was in my possession. I was as giddy as a school girl on the last day of class.  And now that I’m done, I’m left reeling and wondering just where the hell am I supposed to go from here?!  Sierra Simone has quite possibly ruined me for all other trilogies.

“I want to know this isn’t in vain. I want to know my life wasn’t in vain.”

We finally get to delve into Ash’s mind and see just what he’s been thinking this whole time. We get to see how a man who is perceived to be one of the most powerful men on earth is actually extremely vulnerable inside and will do anything and I mean anything for the one’s he loves.  

While this book is mostly in Maxen’s POV, we do get a bit of Embry, Greer and someone else who you will definitely want to hear from. Through Maxen we have flashbacks to the past to understand just how he got to this point in his life and why.  At this point in the trilogy, I would hope that you have picked up on the underlying mythology that has been being foreshadowed throughout the first two books.  In this one, you will learn it all and I do believe you are in for a treat.

American King reaffirms the reason you fell in love with this threesome to begin with. It will make you happy.  It will make your heart hurt so much you might cry.  It will make you blush and look around to see if anyone is watching you read all these sexy times.  It will make your stomach twist with knots that you beg to go away because you know if they don’t that life as you know it will never be the same.  It will also show you that when you truly love someone (“someones”) all the sacrifices you are willing to make to keep them safe.

Two words to describe this book…soul shattering.

One word to describe this series…M.A.G.N.I.F.I.C.E.N.T.

“…once upon a time, there were two warriors who loved the same woman as much as they loved each other. And everything that happened afterwards led inevitably to tragedy.”
